Our room was large with a separate kitchen area providing all necessary amenities. Very clean with a very comfortable queen sized bed & 1 single bed. Ideally located in the Chinatown area so there are loads of restaurants nearby. The local free buses (98A&99A) stop nearby - one circles the city area with frequent stops and the other covers N....

Extremely rude lady at service desk. Even though it is a cheaper end hotel I would still expect to be spoken to with dignity.

The breakfree director's studio is okay accommodation. You get what you pay for really. The room is clean enough, no frills. We ended up buying ear plugs as there is a karaoke bar next door and you could hear people leaving into the small hours. It's a little bit out of the way, couple of blocks walk from the eating...

As usual, great value for a good location. A letter explaining that there was an interruption to the water supply was left on the desk in the room but I didn't see it until much later, perhaps reception staff could have mentioned it at the time of check in? Other than that, a great stay.

Break free Directors studios provides clean and spacious rooms that are within walking distance of the CBD. There is limited parking and if you come in late and miss out, street parking can be tricky due to restrictions on all roads nearby.

Lucky enough to be there early enough to get a carpark at the hotel which is always a bonus! Longer walk to Mall/ further from City Centre than I expected. Close'ish to restaurants on Gouger and Grote Streets.

Great location in the City of Adelaide...central to most things. Stayed in a room in the other building on ground floor. Room is okay but the light coming into the room all night is a problem.
